Little Slugger Ice Cream Cones
The Little Slugger LLC, Chicago, introduces the first and only line of patented baseball bat shaped ice cream cones and baseball and bat shaped fruit snacks to the retail market. The Little Slugger product lines will hit store shelves spring 2014 with the start of Major League Baseball.
“The Little Slugger offers a new twist on an American tradition for kids,” says Tony Antonacci, CEO. “Baseball is America’s favorite pastime and accounts for much of youth play activity in the U.S. There is no better feel good tradition than for a team to enjoy ice cream after a game--win or lose--to build camaraderie.”
“The Little Slugger’s fat-free fruit snacks are conveniently packaged in pocket-size bags so they keep kids going into extra innings,” says Managing Partner Lou Antonacci. “These delicious snacks are made with real fruit juice so parents will appreciate them as a fun, healthier alternative for their active children.”
The Little Slugger offers a variety of cone products and fruit snacks available for the grocery, mass merchant, convenience, dollar and foodservice industries. The Little Slugger’s red, white and blue branding, which focuses on kids and baseball, stands alone among ice cream and fruit snack novelties. Furthermore, the Little Slugger’s trademarked “It’s a hit every time!” resonates with baseball fans of any age.
The cones come in cake (6 and 12 count) and sugar (12 count) varieties. Sprinkles come in every package for flavor and fun enhancement.
The fat-free, gluten-free fruit snacks come in six flavors: apple, grape, lemon, orange, cherry and watermelon. They are available in 0.9 oz.-pouches in 10, 25, 42 and 80-count boxes, as well as dozen packs of theater box size (3.5 oz.) and peg bag size (5 oz.).
